Has anyone ever tried using 5160 (or similar) for razors? The reason I ask is that a colleague tore up the old dock at his family's cottage this summer, and brought me several hunks of mystery steel. Turns out part of it is wrought iron. Anyway, I was playing around with one of the pieces last night, and tried forge welding it to a piece of leaf spring. My intention was to make some knives, but now I'm thinking that looks like it has potential for a razor billet. But I can't recall hearing of anyone using 5160 for a razor... Possibly not hard enough? If not, no worries. I'd much rather source some proper steel than waste the wrought on something that won't work. It's pretty rare stuff around here. The piece pictured is around 1 1/4" x 5/16" x 5 1/2". I should have enough wrought to make three more billets like this one.
